It seems that tmux translates the erase character, but it should not do that. In my xterms I have set the option "Backarrow key" which causes the key labeled "backspace" to generate an actual backspace (control-H) character. Correspondingly, I have set "stty erase ^H". Inside tmux, if I hit Backspace, I get a DEL character (^?). And somehow it has set "stty erase ^?" as well. So apparently it translates the external erase character to an internal one. All is good and well, but this means I can't type ^H any more! And there are several programs where I would want that, such as mutt and vim. The manual doesn't contain the word "erase"... is there any less obvious way to stop tmux doing this annoying thing? I simply want my internal erase character the same as the external one, and no messing about with translating backspace. -Olaf. -- ___ Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert -- The Doctor: No, 'eureka' is Greek for \X/ rhialto/at/xs4all.nl -- 'this bath is too hot.'
